My chickens droop their wings occasionally as shown in the pic. Is it because it's hot here?
Chickens can get heat exhaustion, particularly cochins and other heavy breeds. I had one go flat out but she responded well to a cool water hosing making sure to get the water down to the skin and under the wings. Luckily I watched the online portion of my husband's CPR course! What works for people works for chickensNow I make sure to put icecubes in the water on really hot days ( which we're having a lot of this summer)
She looks like my girls, did you take my chicken, I got to take a head count. Yes it's hot here too,check out one of my girls right after she laid.IMy chickens droop their wings occasionally as shown in the pic. Is it because it's hot here?
